Photos from Amazon Event Sept 6 2012 (press conference)

The Amazon event took place in Santa Monica and they had a rather overwhelming number of Kindle announcements.  Am adding shots of the Kindle Paperwhite intro.

The photos are for the A Kindle World blog.

These are a few photos (no editing was done on the first 20 shown earlier except for brightness/contrast) taken during moments that stood out for me.  NO flash was used, so some are very high-ISO photos.   I used the new Sony RX100 pocket camera most, including for the projection of the Kindle Fire HD image.  Other shots were with the Canon SX10 IS.

  Later I'll add a few more for the atmosphere of the presentation (including the post-announcement demos and hands-on time).

  I also took video notes because the WiFi wasn't holding connections for some of us, although I noticed quite a few connections were via mifi rather than depending on the overcrowded hookup there.

  *LARGER images* during a session: To see these, click on **'Original'** option below an image.
    And to make sure browser is right 'size' press ctrl-zero (maybe Option-zero on Macs)

Click on any thumbnail to get the larger version.  Then click on "Next" or "Previous" to see other ones.
